  • My doctor says they get worse and stronger with subsequent pregnancies... I started having them at 28 weeks with baby #2 and then delivered at 37 weeks because I had already dialated so much. You may need to really take it easy for the next few weeks to make sure you get to the 37 week mark....If it comes too early your baby may have to spend time in the ICU and that is NO fun.
